Galego posted a video on Christmas of her son's Hatchimal coming out of its plastic egg shell. It makes multiple sounds that some YouTubers claimed were nothing more than vague sleep noises. However, the Galegos heard something different.
"I'm pretty sure it says '(expletive) me,'" Nick Galego told CTV Vancouver Island.
In a statement released to Global News, the company behind the mega-popular children's toy, Spin Master, denied that the toy curses.
"Hatchimals communicate by speaking their own unique language, which is made of up of random sounds, and by making other noises, including shivering when they're cold and snoring while they sleep," spokeswoman Anne Yourt said.
Speaking with CTV Vancouver, she added that the toy featured in the Galego family video appeared to be sleeping.
The complaints are the latest to be levied against the much-hyped Hatchimal toys. Earlier this month, parents took to social media to complain that their children's Hatchimals weren't hatching at all.
